Handbook of Sustainable & Regenerative Food Systems

I am excited to announce that our new Handbook of Sustainable and Regenerative Food Systems will be out soon.

The Handbook includes contributions from established and emerging scholars from around the world and draws on multiple approaches and subjects to explore the socio-economic, cultural, ecological, institutional, legal, and policy aspects of regenerative food practices.

Taken as a whole, the chapters point to a number of key practices and ideas that would appear central to advancing regenerative food systems, from a social-ecological perspective. We draw on these chapters to identify 6 principles for  regenerative food systems, noting that these are not exclusive or clear-cut principles, but rather dynamic, cross-cutting.

The 6 principles are:

  1. Acknowledging and including diverse forms of knowing and being;

2. Taking care of people, animals and the planet;

3. Moving beyond capitalist approaches;

4. Commoning the food system;

5. Promote accountable innovations; and,

6. Long term planning and rural-urban relations.

We will be posting more insights from the Handbook over the next weeks!
